Favourite Home Scents | The White Company and P.F. Candle Co

It is often believed that the sense of smell is linked to our memories. I genuinely think this must be true. I am sure I am not the only one who have experienced a deja vu of either  transported back to a particular time or place a result of smelling something.

So today, I thought I'd share three of my favourites home scents - two of which have been re-purchased, including one which was shipped directly from the US. If that's not love, I don't know what is?

Why I Can't Resist A Gift with Purchase















Who doesn't love a gift with purchase? I know I do!

As it says on the tin, a gift with purchase is often a brand promotion to encourage consumers to purchase more items, to receive the gift(s). It is often used by brands in the beauty and cosmetics industry. In order to qualify for the gift, one often has to spend either a certain amount, e.g. at least £20 or purchase a particular item, e.g. must include a skin care item or a perfume - just as an example.

Personally, I am a sucker for a gift with purchase. I often make a bee line to the beauty or cosmetic counters as soon as I hear they are having a gift with purchase promotion. So today I thought I'd share three reasons why I can't resist a gift with purchase promotion and why I think you should consider it too.

South of France Travel Guide | Nice, Cannes, Antibes, Eze and Monaco

One of the things that I embrace about being single is that my holidays are not tied to school holidays,  half terms and Easter breaks. As a matter of fact, I generally avoid going away during those period because a) everything is more expensive and b) everywhere is crowded.
So upon realising that my last time off work  was more than two months ago, I thought it's about time that I book a weekend trip to another European city that I have not been - the South of France which is also commonly known as the French Riviera.

Flights 
The flight from London to Nice takes about two hours and the journey from the airport to central Nice, takes about 15 minutes. For this trip, I flew with BA, but I know EasyJet also flies to Nice.

Accommodation
Throughout this trip, I stayed at the Ellington Hotel which is located in the very central part of Nice and highly accessible to the main high street, shopping areas, attraction sites and the train station.
